@asim: "what happened to murders of Benazir, Liaqat ali khan etc?" And include the murders of hundreds of Shia? Sir, some murders are more imp than the others. It is sad that only slaps, bottles of wine, and other high crimes are taken by the SC not the big murders and where hundreds of people are killed.

He has sufficient time to appear live on the shame-less electronic media, and fire all sorts of accusations, but refuses to record official statement for poor health. What should we call this.
